About Jones Air
Jones Air began operating in 1974 when Daryl Jones took over an existing business in St George. Daryl started his flying career in 1960 with Hazelton Air Services and continued on to become Chief Pilot of the operation now known as Hazelton Airlines. Today Jones Air is owned by Daryl's sons, Scott and Peter and utilises eleven fixed wing aircraft. Seven of these aircraft are high capacity turbine powered ag aircraft ranging in capacity from 2000 to 3200 litres per load.

The Jones Air operation includes an aircraft maintenance facility based in St George, servicing aircraft in the western regions of Queensland and New South Wales.

We also offer charter and scenic flight services in our Cessna 210 six seater aircraft.
